The use of herbs in medicine dates back thousands of years. In fact, many of today’s medicines were originally derived from botanicals. For example, aspirin once came from the white willow tree, quinine from the bark of the cinchona tree and digitalis from foxglove. Herbs are still the basis for the Chinese medicine and are important constituents of many European natural remedies. As Hippocrates said, ‘Let thy food be thy medicine, thy medicine be thy food’. Solgar is committed to bringing you the best herbal supplements available today. They apply the same high standards to their herbs as with the rest of their nutritional supplements. Solgar’s herbs are carefully selected from plants growing in the wild (wild-crafted) or meticulously cultivated on special herb farms. They choose the finest, freshest herbs based on a strict set of criteria such as, the correct geographically origin of the raw material, the authentication of the species and the quality of the raw materials. Their herbs enter state of the art quality control in a microbiological laboratory where they are scientifically evaluated for their quality, purity, potency and authenticity.
